The Ames Tribune in the 1950s

Posted on 01 May 2016

In researching Linotype machines (which I will cover further in a few days), I came across this photoset spanning from the early to late 1950s of the printing room at the Ames Tribune Weekly. The Tribune is a Pulitzer winning newspaper that is housed in the same building today. From the photos, it looked to be an enjoyable place to work - the employees all appear to be in good spirits in these seemingly candid photos. You can almost smell the ink, oil, and burning coal.

You can find more photos and information at ameshistory.org.
